At the end of every review, we include a buy link. After the #amazonfail episode wherein Amazon deranked all the books with gay/lesbian/erotic etc in the category, we switched to Indiebound. Unfortunately none of the readers here use Indiebound to make purchases.
The reason that this is important to Dear Author is because we earn a tiny percentage (usually around 6%) for each book that is purchased through our affiliate link. This usually afforded us enough money each month to pay for postage and hosting fees. Because people seem to prefer to use Amazon, going forward the buy links will refer people to Amazon.
I know that this will disappoint some of you and make others happy but in the end, it’s the best thing for the health of the blog (plus Ned will not frown so much about how expensive my blogging hobby is).
